I am trying to get back to the XAC version (Canadian version) of the firmware and had previously tested the CleanRom and the MK1 (these work fine but all miss the English(Canadian) language). I have two P600UEUAMJ4 (which is the right and original firmware it came with) and am not able to run it through ODIN. I am not going to make this the weekend of recovery as it is easy enough to send over the right stock firmware. I did contact Samsung and asked for a technician as I want to know if I can access the system through ADB and see if I can somehow convince the system to accept the firmware.

This is the ODIN output, which really only tells me it is failed....

<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> P600UEUAMJ4_P600XACAMJ4_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/003> Removed!!
<ID:0/006> Added!!
<ID:0/006> Odin v.3 engine (ID:6)..
<ID:0/006> File analysis..
<ID:0/006> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/006> Initialzation..
<ID:0/006> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/006> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/006> sboot.bin
<ID:0/006> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/006> boot.img
<ID:0/006> recovery.img
<ID:0/006> system.img
<ID:0/006> cache.img
<ID:0/006> FAIL!
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

Turning it off and on shows that the firmware failed, Kies has no way to figure out what the heck happened and goes into panic mode and stops at 96% (around the same as where ODIN stops...)

Go into Kies 3, Reinstall USB drivers under the Tools menu. Reboot. Try Odin again.

That did not work either -

The device is properly recognized and I have learned an important lesson.

What I should have done is the following: create a backup before rooting the device with ADB - note to self
That way, even when **** hits the fan, I could have extracted what I needed with the ADB tool.

I wonder if the there is a fastboot image kicking around on the internet - googling.

Thanks for the reply.

If you're using a windows 8/8.1 machine, try Odin again on a Win7 pc.

I will fire one up, you think it might have to do with drivers? Luckily I have a W7 kicking around.
Will let you know when...

Nope that did not do the trick, I even freshly installed a laptop with W7 - pretty much stuck with the MK1 firmware - it keeps failing at the same point over and over again.
Oh and yes I downloaded the firmware from three different spots and also Kies or Kies3 have no clue how to handle it.



Going for a walk - need to clear my head.

Try the latest firmware P600ZHUANC3 and odin 3.09 (latest)

I did mirrors a while ago here:
